I hate to have this be my first post on this forum, but my fish is very sick. At first she got fin rot, so I gave some bettafix to her, the treatment was successful, but then about 4 days later, she didn't want to eat anymore. I did a 100% water change to help her out.
She is still not eating. I started to do epsom salt treatments 2 days ago, because I thought she conspistated. As her tummy was a bit bloated, and that she very stressed about nothing. Now her tummy doesn't look bloated anymore, but she still hadn't pooped. She is now hovering at the top of the tank breathing for dear life even....
